(Kaseran Pillay, Krijay Govender, & Leeanda Reddy)

Booking is now open for Glued, the hilariously irreverent comedy for the Playhouse Company’s festive season starring three of South Africa’s best comedy talents: Krijay Govender, Leeanda Reddy and Kaseran Pillay.

Coming to the Playhouse this December for two performances only on December 22 and 23, Glued is sure to keep audiences glued to every word these mirthful performers utter, and have audiences rolling in the aisles. Sending up the screen-addicted generation with the team’s own style of skit comedy, Glued covers everything from soapies to news to reality shows, and even wildlife TV!

With previous hits like Buckled and Queens of Comedy, it is clear that this team with their new production Glued will provide audiences with the perfect comedy treat for the festive season.

Leeanda Reddy is a film, television and stage actress who has performed all over South Africa, as well as internationally. She has received numerous accolades for her performances and is a familiar face on South African screens for her role in SABC 3's Isidingo. She also starred as the female lead opposite Leon Schuster in South Africa's premier grossing comedy movie Mr Bones 2. Even though Reddy is an old hand at both the small and big screens, she remains more at home on the theatre stage, especially in stage comedy. She is currently also working on international projects, and is branching into the restaurant world.

Govender has been voted by the media as the funniest woman in South Africa. She was described by Sunday Times columnist Gwen Gill as one of the top three Master of Ceremonies (MCs) in South Africa. In 2013, She participated in the Edinburgh Festival in Scotland as both playwright and performer and played granny in the best-selling film, Material. Govender is the winner of four SAFTA awards for TV directing.

Pillay is a comedian, stage and screen actor who started with Shakespeare and comic sketches. He will be remembered as a presenter in Going Nowhere Slowly and was a popular figure in Survivor South Africa. He is best known for his role as the nasty villain in the top grossing Mr Bones 2.
